Fresh Without The Pressure


Keep it fresh,
Without the pressure.
And don't make it less,
But make it much better.

And take stock in what you've got,
To top it.
And never let go,
Or ever try to stop it.

Keep it fresh,
Without the pressure.
And know it in your heart,
You can can drop it even better...
Without the pressure.

It aint easy to succeed with a reaching to keep...
A knocking down of obstacles to defeat and delete.
It aint easy to succeed with a reaching to keep...
A knocking down of obstacles to defeat and delete.

Take stock in what you've got,
To top it.
And never let go,
Or ever try to stop it.

Keep it fresh,
Without the pressure.
Just keep it up to date,
And fresh...
To know you've got better.

It aint easy to succeed with a reaching to keep...
It fresh.
Without the pressure.

Take stock in what you've got,
To top it.
And never let go,
Or ever try to stop it.
Keep it fresh!
Without the pressure.
Without the pressure.
Without the pressure.
Keep it fresh!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
